survival guide 

Second edition of Survival Guide released How to keep the peace with your landlord, a recipe for a cheap but nutritious meal, the consequences of skiing out of bounds and the location of the one public washroom in the village are some of the perils and pitfalls of living in Whistler addressed in the 1995-96 edition of the Whistler Survival Guide. The second edition of the Whistler Survival Guide was released this week. Billed as the definitive guide to living and working in Whistler, the booklet is aimed at young people just arriving in town for their first winter. The survival guide covers topics such as employment, where to shop for affordable goods, transportation, local laws and bylaws, health care and alcohol and drugs. The booklet is full of tips and information but written and presented in a way so that it is never preachy. Additional information on safety for women was added to this year's survival guide, based on feedback from readers of last year's first edition. As well, new information on the risks of hitchhiking was added. The 36-page pocket book is produced by Mountain Community Health Alternatives and sponsored by 30 local businesses. Tina Nowaczewski did the writing, Danielle Kristmanson handled the production and Ann Ward was the sales person. Five-thousand copies of the booklet have been printed, on recycled paper — 3,000 copies were snapped up in three weeks last year. Readers are requested to pass the guide along to friends when they're done with it, to keep the limited number of copies in circulation. The survival guide is available at no charge from: Creekside Pharmacy, Coast Garibaldi Health Unit, Community Recreation Centre, Dr. Ledgerwood's Office, Meadow Park Sports Complex, Nesters Market, Shoestring Lodge, both Slalom Photo locations, the Whistler Community Services Society, Whistler Health Care Centre, Whistler Hostel, Village Business Services, and the Whistler Public Library.
